Notes

This show can fit on two 80 min. discs if discs 1 ends with Fire on
the Mountain.

I (Donbean) got this from a friend. I didn't do this show. However, it was one of the best shows I have seen! This is the best version I have found.

Subject: best recording of this great show now in circulation
Like so many reviewers (see the schoeps source I think for several reviews), I think of this as one of the best shows I saw, and one of the highest times of my life. For the most part this comes through on tape. If you were there, this is the recording you want. If you weren't, it's still worth a listen, particularly the Scarlet > Fire and the Crazy Fingers out of space. That combo was only done one other time and this version is greatly superior to that - he gets the words right for one thing.

Certainly this show had the highest rate of Spontaneous Woo! of any I attended.

The Healy echo you hear on Fire was rolling sequentially through the quad speakers btw. I was on the floor and it was a crazy thing to hear. Each "bounce" of the echo came out of a different stack, circling around the room. Outstanding! On tape that quad effect doesn't come through of course.

Subject: Great Recording; Great Effort
This show is a masterpiece, especially the second set. The setlist speaks for itself and the recording is just great.
